Release : All Supported Releases
Component : CA PPM SAAS PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT
Role Demand is the Average Allocation per project for the duration of the Portfolio plan - calculated in FTE
This value includes both roles on the project and resources assigned the role on a project
If a resource has allocation but is not assigned a role on the project, it still gets pulled into the Role Demand (included in the "Other Role" section of the Role Demand calculation)
Example: Project A on portfolio has:
One DBA role on project allocated at 100% the entire duration of the portfolio - This is equivalent to 1.0 Role Demand
One Resource assigned DBA role allocated at 100% the entire duration - This is Equivalent to 1.0 Role Demand
One Resource assigned to the Business Analyst Role at 100% the entire duration - This is Equivalent to 1.0 Role Demand
One resource assigned 50% Allocation with no role on the project - This gets added into "Other Roles" and the equivalent of .5 Role Demand
As shown in the screen shot below, the Total Role Demand for the DBA role is 2.0 (the first two roles above)
To get to this page:
Go to the Waterlines tab of the Porfolio
Click on the project on the Waterlines tab
Click on the Role Demand tab
The Total Role Demand is the total of the 4 role measurements of above = 3.50
If the project is above the waterline, this amount gets pulled into the Above Waterline section of the Role Demand, or if below the Waterline, it gets pulled into the Below Waterline section of Role Demand.
The Roles included in this portlet are the roles added on the Target tab of the portfolio
